RE For Week 

Each week, while we are apart, Sybil is sending RE Connections for All Ages to all families, with fun activities to do together, resources for helping parents and children cope, and some music and stories related to our faith tradition and class curriculums. Below are some of the things sent to families in recent weeks. Each week Sybil will list a few more of these for the congregation to see, as another way we can stay connected to our many wonderful RE parents, children, and youth.

For the Week of April 19, 2021

Soulful Home for April: Becoming

Poetry and Readings for Inner Strength, Peace, Hope, Healing, and Beauty

Earth Day by Jane Yolen

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here
Naturally.

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
